So.. posting for positive birthing vibes and general fun and to keep my mind off the pain I'm about to be in!
So I'm 4 days overdue today, have high blood pressure and a trace of protein in my urine. Been sent to the hospital for BP profile and to check on baby... Midwife has a feel and budge about and called in a doctor! They thought she was bum first .. so had a scan and turns out she is head first just very low down and it was shoulders they were feeling They reckon I've cooked a nice 9lber .. I dunno whether to be happy or scared lmao. Midwife gave me a good stretch and sweep and I'm 2-3cm with a soft cervix .. I'm now on the induction suite waiting to have a 'gel' inserted! Super excited and super scared (3rd baby and I know what's coming!) Partner is in his way .. I'm really hoping this labour will be straight forward and quick as possible! Wish me luck!
